The Dinkum C++ Library and additional libraries, in machine-readable or printed form (“Dinkum Library”), and the Dinkum C++ Library Reference and additional documentation, in machine-readable or printed form (“Dinkum Reference”), hereafter in whole or in part the “Product,” are all copyrighted by P.J. Plauger and/or Dinkumware, Ltd. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. The Product is derived in part from books copyright © 1992-2001 by P.J. Plauger.

Dinkumware, Ltd. and P.J. Plauger (“Licensor”) retain exclusive ownership of this Product. It is licensed to you (“Licensee”) in accordance with the terms specifically stated in this Notice. If you have obtained this Product from a third party or under a special license from Dinkumware, Ltd., additional restrictions may also apply. You must otherwise treat the Product the same as other copyrighted material, such as a book or recording. You may also exercise certain rights particular to computer software under copyright law. In particular:

  • You may use the Library portion of the Product (if present) to compile and link with C/C++ code to produce executable files.
  • You may freely distribute such executable files for no additional license fee to Licensor.
  • You may make one or more backup copies of the Product for archival purposes.
  • You may permanently transfer ownership of the Product to another party only if the other party agrees to the terms stated in this Notice and you transfer or destroy all copies of the Product that are in your posession.
  • You must preserve this Notice and all copyright notices with any copy you make of the Product.
  • You may not loan, rent, or sublicense the Product.
  • You may not copy or distribute, in any form, any part of this Product for any purpose not specifically permitted by this Notice.

This copy of the Product is licensed for use by a limited number of developers, which is specified as part of the packaging for this Product. A license for up to ten users, for example, limits to ten the number of developers reasonably able to use the Product at any instant of time. Thus, ten is the maximum number of possible concurrent users, not the number of actual concurrent users. A single-user license is for use by just one developer.

Anyone who accesses this software has a moral responsibility not to aid or abet illegal copying by others. Licensor recognizes that the machine-readable format of the Product makes it particularly conducive to sharing within multi-user systems and across networks. Such use is permitted only so long as Licensee does not exceed the maximum number of possible concurrent users and takes reasonable precautions to protect the Product against unauthorized copying and against public access. In particular, please note that the ability to access this copy does not imply permission to use it or to copy it. Please note also that Licensor has expended considerable professional effort in the production of this Product, and continues to do so to keep it current.

Licensor warrants that the Product as shipped performs substantially in accordance with its documented purpose, and that the medium on which the Product is provided is free from defects in material and workmanship. To the extent permitted by law, any implied warranties on the Product are limited to 90 days.

Licensor's entire liability under this warranty shall be, at Licensor's option, either to refund the license fee paid by Licensee or to replace the medium on which the Product is provided. This is also Licensee's exclusive remedy. To qualify for this remedy, Licensee must demonstrate satisfactory proof of purchase to Licensor and return the Product in reasonably good condition to Licensor.

LICENSOR OTHERWISE MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES ABOUT THE SUITABILITY OF THIS PRODUCT, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR NON-INFRINGEMENT. LICENSOR SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR ANY DAMAGES SUFFERED BY LICENSEE AS A RESULT OF USING THIS PRODUCT, EVEN IF LICENSOR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY LAW, LICENSOR SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES.

By using this Product, you agree to abide by the intellectual property laws and all other applicable laws of the USA, and the terms described above. You may be held legally responsible for any infringement that is caused or encouraged by your failure to abide by the terms of this Notice.

RESTRICTED RIGHTS: Use, duplication, or disclosure by the government is subject to the restrictions as set forth in subparagraph (c)(1)(ii) of the Rights in Technical Data and Computer Software Clause as DFARS 52.227-7013 and FAR 52.227-19.

The terms of this notice shall be governed by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. THE RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS OF THE PARTIES SHALL NOT BE GOVERNED BY THE PROVISIONS OF THE U.N. CONVENTION FOR THE INTERNATIONAL SALE OF GOODS, 1980.

This Copyright and License Notice is the entire agreement of the parties with respect to the matters set forth herein, and supersedes any other oral or written agreements or communications relating thereto, and shall alone be binding. No provision appearing on any purchase order, quotation form, or other form originated by either party shall be applicable.
